Title:  If You Had to Choose, What Would You Do?

Author:  Sandra McLeod Humphrey

Publisher:  Prometheus Books

Reviewer: Karl L. Kruger – AAA Member Reviewer

This book, the first in the series, is the kind of book that I sought out when raising my young children. Humphrey, a licensed psychologist, does not preach values to children. Instead, she uses her years of experience to introduce twenty-five scenarios followed by a series of questions. These questions, ideal for teachers leading classroom discussions or for parents engaged in daily readings with their children, do not explicitly state a right course of action, but allow children to explore and fine-tune their own moral compass. The effect is the development of a child’s own sense of fairness and what makes actions inherently right or wrong. I highly recommend this book, and the others in the series, for any teacher, parent, or grandparent interested in pursuing lively discussions regarding ethics and behavior with children.

Reviewer: Molly Williams – AAA Guest Reviewer

*Molly Williams is an elementary school counselor.

The book If You Had to Choose, What Would You Do? is the first in a series of books that presents student readers with real-life scenarios that ask them to think about their choices in certain situations. This is a wonderful teaching tool and a great resource for school counselors. This book can be used in small groups or with whole classes when presenting guidance lessons. Students can even role-play the scenarios, acting out the different choices they could make and reinforcing the right ones.
